A federal mediator was unable to make any headway between BART workers and management.
Tragically, two BART workers were killed by a train over the weekend while inspecting a segment of train track. Federal authorities are investigating.
KPFA's Saturday Morning Talkies dedicated their show this weekend to the BART strike. In a program recorded for the previous BART strike, economist Richard Wolff tried to put the strike in the context of American labor history. Local journalist Davey D argues there's bigger things at stake in the strike. Allison Kilkenny sees a pattern in "workers [are] greedy" coverage of unions in the press.
